For the fourth time Aarhus University hosted the food conference European Food Venture Forum, where 32 companies from 16 different countries had the opportunity to meet potential investors and collaboration partners.
Researchers from Plymouth University are collaborating with world-leading industrial biotechnology and synthetic biology business Ingenza, to develop an efficient, scalable microbial production system for epidermicin, a new class of antibiotic being developed for use in the fight against infections caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
A novel way to count white blood cells without a blood test, simply by applying a small device on the fingertip, is being developed by a team of young bioengineers. The technology, that combines an optical sensor with algorithms, has already three prototypes on the go and is specially designed to be used on chemotherapy patients, who could know their immune system levels in real time. It could also serve to detect serious infections.
The scientific aims are bold, but the gains can be enormous. The new CADIAC research center at Aarhus University will be the most ambitious venture in the world to date to find the best methods to convert CO2 into medicine, plastic and useful chemicals. Even on Mars.
During the investigation, crew members will sequence the DNA of bacteria, bacteriophage (a virus that infects and replicates within a bacterium) and rodents from samples prepared on Earth that have known genomic characteristics. Researchers on Earth also will run synchronous ground controls to evaluate how well the hardware is working.
By figuring out how our cells 'feel' gravity, this investigation could help finally determine why and how muscles waste away in space. That may leave people in space and on Earth feeling a lot stronger.
Solar energy pricing is at an all-time low, according to a new report released by Berkeley Lab. Driven by lower installed costs, improved project performance, and a race to build projects ahead of a reduction in a key federal incentive, utility-scale solar project developers have been negotiating power sales agreements with utilities at prices averaging just 5¢/kWh.
The Society of NeuroInterventional Surgeryand M2S, a leading clinical registry provider, are pleased to announce the launch of the new Cerebral Aneurysm module for the NeuroVascular Quality Initiative, and the planned launch for the Cerebral Arteriovenous Malformations module in early October.
Lock Data Solutions has licensed a technology from the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory designed to protect a company's data from internal and external threats
Aelan Cell Technologies today announced they have entered into an agreement with the Gladstone Institutes to further its studies on stem cell rejuvenation. This effort will be led by Meenakshi Gaur, Ph.D. of Aelan Cell Technologies and Kathryn Ivey, Ph.D. of the Gladstone Institutes.
